Aged Care Worker Sacked For Refusing Flu Jab Loses Unfair Dismissal Claim

Aged care worker sacked for refusing flu jab loses unfair dismissal claim

An aged care worker sacked for refusing a flu jab has lost her unfair dismissal claim.

The Fair Work Commission described the nursing home’s vaccination requirement as “prudent and reasonable”.

It’s the second time the Commission has found an employer can force staff to be immunised against influenza.

Employment law experts say the decision will have have implications for the current COVID-19 vaccine rollout.
